Lidia-del-Pozo---BBVA

According to the World Economic Forum, 65 percent of children who enroll in primary school today will have jobs that don’t currently exist. This is why on January 25, twenty large corporations announced their commitment to team up through 2022 with the goal of helping young people develop the skills that will make them more employable.  BBVA is among the companies that have signed up to this cause, committing to reach 500,000 young people with its various training programs. The initiative is the Global Alliance for YOUth. Lidia del Pozo, BBVA’s Director of Community Investment Programs, delves into some of the key aspects of this initiative.

In 2019, the Business 20 (B20) – considered to be the private sector’s voice of the G20 – is seeking to showcase innovative projects that contribute to the fulfillment of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). To this end, business members of this advisory body to the G20 have submitted proposals for projects that make a significant social impact. BBVA is the only Spanish bank whose five project submissions are among those selected.

The Climate Bonds Initiative recognized BBVA for its global leadership, best practices and innovation in the field of sustainable financing at the 2019 Green Bond Pioneer Awards.  The bank received three awards for the publication of its framework for sustainable bonds tied to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); for being the first financial issuer of a green bond in Spain; and for issuing the first green bond from a financial institution in Mexico.
